I have a couple PMs stuck in the Out Box that haven't sent. One has been there maybe a couple weeks. How do I get those to send? Delete and re-try? I've previously had one that hung around for a couple days before it sent. Am I missing something?

Thanks

I have found that if the PMs show in the outbox, that means that the receiver has not read them yet. When they are read they disappear from your outbox.

Some of my PMs just flat out VANISH. I end up having to rewrite and resend the, the next time I visit this site.

Also, I'm wondering how to delete a PM. There has been one stuck in my outbox for several years, and I guess the guy doesn't want it. But, I can't make it vanish when I want to...

Thanks for any help anybody can provide.

Sammy,

There's a check box on the right side next to the PM. Check that. There's another box below the list that says "Mark for export" or something like that by default. Click the little down-arrow for a drop-down list and click on "Delete". Then click "Go". That should make it go away.

Hi Eric - Thanks for bringing this up. I had sent PM's to 2 moderators about this topic. Based on what I learned in this thread, 1 picked up my message and never bothered to reply. The other has yet to read my message!
